London Motor Museum Visit
A few weeks ago, we were invited out by the V8 Mentalists Club for a cruise.
A quick count of the cylinders in our car as we figure the 8 thing was important, and yup, we have 8 cylinders. In one car as well. And in a V that also seemed to be important. So we tagged along for a fantastic day.
Part of the day was spent at the London Motor Museum. Ever heard of it? Nor had we. But what an absolute gem of a find.
As we crashed the place with the club, the entry fee was waived, but under normal circumstances, (eg turning up with a club with less than 8 cylinders) you will get shaken down for £10. If you like old American cars, with the occasional Europe classic thrown in, then this is the place.
Many of the cars can be described as custom, maybe used for a season or two, and then stored in this museum. Judging from a few paintwork clues, some of the cars have been there for a few years.
The place also has it's own workshop, so maybe (didn't get it confirmed), it's like American Hot Rod crossed with London Town. Hot rods for a cold climate.
The museum also goes on for a fair distance as well. This isn't a single room of cars, more like 6-8 large rooms of cars, so it's definitely worth the money. If you can clear the place in under 30 minutes, you are walking too fast, and aren't taking enough pictures.
Talking of pictures, here are the best pictures we could come up with!
Thanks to V8 Mentalists for having us along.
